Qatar recalled its envoy to Tehran on Wednesday in protest over the attacks targeting Saudi Arabia’s missions in in Iran, a foreign ministry statement said.

The response by Doha is similar to action taken by other countries in the Gulf following the attack on the Saudi missions, carried out by protestors angry at Riyadh's execution of Shiite cleric Nimr al-Nimr.
Saudi Arabia and Bahrain have broken off diplomatic ties with Iran in response and Kuwait has recalled its ambassador.
